MotoGP racing cars are the epicenter of the ultimate in technology. Every year, technicians push an accelerator to increase performance.
MotoGP Teams engineers set out in 2022 to put faster, more reliable motorcycles on the track. Two years after the Covid-19 pandemic was affected, manufacturers embarked on ambitious projects to try to recover the technical defect from Ducati. Manufacturer Borgo Panigale has been the World Manufacturers Champion for two years The Italian team’s innovations have upended upper-class models. Technical development has been tremendous in recent years, especially with regard to electronics.
In 2020, it is the turn of Italian couple Dovizioso – Petrucci to ascend red to the top of the world. But last year, Biko Bagnaia and Jack Miller confirmed themselves at the top, celebrating their second straight title. The house of Borgo Panigale is the reference point on the track. for a higher purpose, The Italian team introduced revolutionary technical innovations, which stimulates the interest of other teams. Ducati’s new dynamic lowering allows the bike to be lowered not only at the start, but also during the lap.
The front lowering system was banned from 2023. It is also an unreasonable choice, because in recent years the manufacturer Borgo Panigale has introduced unusual innovations, such as technical innovations for the spoon and wings. The five official teams competing, lagging behind in technology, They gave the opposite opinion of the future and Ducati will have to adapt. La Rossa invested heavily in this solution and could have decided to spend the time in another area.
Desmosedici continues to play a leading role, despite starting the season below expectations. Early in the season, the bike was presented as a gem that would have allowed its riders to fight for the world crown. At the moment, Ducati fans are experiencing a serious lag in the riders standings from captain Fabio Quartararo. The French rider, although his Yamaha M1 falls short of his expectations in terms of engines, is first in the standings. Strength is important, but it is not the only important aspect of the upper class.
MotoGP, motorcycle horses
The 2022 bikes have very advanced aerodynamics. Several elements have been improved to allow for excellent performance. Looking at the GP22 you can see the lower fins have a curved shape and the air is going downwards. Everything is designed to reach very high speeds. Motorsport, at all levels, is hitting the target of maximum performance, jeopardizing the overtaking landscape as well.
Pilots, in addition to innate speed, prove to have an analytical ability, after all GP similar to that of an engineer. The complexity of today’s racing cars is very extreme. Riders have to deal with the increasing difficulties, as well as in managing the complexes. MotoGP motorcyclists race on prototypes built specifically for the tracks, trying to make the most of the engine’s brutal delivery. In fact, first-class motorcycle engines are, on a structural level, smaller than produced motorcycle engines. Everything is designed to reduce weight and increase speed.
Some technical solutions of the path can have a real impact on the market. In the past, Ducati suggested the Desmosedici RR, or Race Replica, which came straight from motorsport. The MotoGP has a displacement of 1,000 cc and exceeds 250 hp. The Ducati Desmosedici, the World Manufacturers Champion, is the reference point in MotoGP, with its four-stroke, 90-degree V4, liquid-cooled, variable-distribution engine with dual overhead camshafts and 4 valves per cylinder. The maximum speed is 360 km / h. The home of Borgo Panigale also announced the bike’s other features.
